Dear Friend
I am Ken Hastrup,A former government official of Liberia. Following the exit of president Charles 
Taylor of Liberia from power 

under a West African brokered peace agreement, led by Nigerian President Musa Sheu Yar Adua he was 
granted asylum by the 

Nigerian Government. In my position as the Financial Secretary to the President and close 
confidant, I left for Nigeria in 

his Encourage.  
My country has been engulfed in Protracted Civil war with rebels controlling some parts of the 
country. During the war, 

President Taylor disbursed large sums of Money to buy the loyalty of the entire cabinet,and I can 
say with all modesty that I 

was one of the Chief Beneficiaries of this disbursement. 
This is aside from money I used my official position to acquire while in office.Since we relocated 
to Calabar, Southern 

Nigeria all has been well, but with the recent indictment of former President Taylor by the war 
crime tribunal sitting in 

Sierra Leone and confirmed reports of a dedicated fund by the American Government to capture him in 
order to face war crime 

charges have now decided to leave the country.  
Presently I have funds totaling $15,000,000. (Fifteen Million USDollars) Which I intend to move 
oversea for investment and 

spend the rest of my life there with my family. 
This transaction is risk-free as all local arrangement has been made. If you are prepared to assist 
to work with me I require 

the following:  
Your Full Name: 
Postal Address:
Your Private Telephone:
Fax Number :
private Email Address:   
As Compensation for your assistance you will retain 15% of the Total
sum, While 5% will be mapped out for local andInternational expenses.

Though we are not known to each other, I strongly believe that through
this transaction we would be able to forge a mutually beneficial
relationship between us, now and in the future.  
Finally, the success of this transaction will depend to a great extent on mutual trust, secrecy and 
Confidentiality from you. 

I await your response to this email:
Best Regards,
Ken Hastrup
